SAR Called Off Following Sunday Avalanche

Golden RCMP say that no one was injured in a Sunday avalanche near Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

Police were called in the afternoon about the possibility of a missing person, following an avalanche that came down outside of the Resort's boundaries.

That caller soon informed Police that their friend was not in need of rescue, or any medical attention.

Search and Rescue staff were then stood down.

No further details have been released, and Police say that back-country users still need to remember the importance of checking weather and avalanche forecasts.
